How I Prepped My Skin for Vegas

Hey Everyone!

I am back from my friend’s bachelorette party in Vegas!  It was such a great time!  I had never been to Vegas before, so it was a whole new experience for me, and I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I definitely wasn’t let down, but at the same time, it wasn’t quite as crazy as I thought it would be (It’s not exactly what the movies make it out to be, but I am thankful for that!).  It’s all what you make of it.  Luckily no one in our group was sent to jail or left married to a stranger. HAHA!

The week before I left, I realized I needed to give my skin some attention.  I like to joke with my friends that I am the palest person in America.  That may not be true, but I still feel a lot more sexy and confident when my skin has a little more color to it! There is a history of skin cancer in my family, so I wanted to get a healthy glow that was actually healthy!  No tanning beds for me anymore.  So, I made a quick stop at Sephora and got the St. Tropez 3-step tanning kit.

The kit come with a tan enhancing polish, self tan foam, tan enhancing moisturizer, and a mitt to use to apply the tanning foam evenly.  The process was fairly easy.  First, you use the scrub (polish) to exfoliate your skin within 24 hours of when you will apply the tanning foam. Second, moisturize the dry/problem areas, such as, knees, elbows, and ankles.  Third, apply the self-tan foam using the hand mitt provided.  When you apply the foam it leaves a slight tan color so that you can see what parts of your skin you have already applied to and what you have missed.  Next, you leave it on for 1-3 hours depending on your desired shade of tan.  You can put clothes on after your skin is dry to the touch, so don’t worry.  You don’t need to walk around naked for three hours while waiting for your skin to tan…unless you want to!  No judgements.  Finally, after waiting the 1-3 hours, you simply rinse off in the shower and your tan will gradually develop within the next 12 hours.

The St. Tropez kit gave me a natural looking tan and was super easy to apply evenly.  I will definitely use this product again and again when I feel like I need some color!

The other product I used every night during my bedtime routine before Vegas was Brazilian Bum Bum Cream.  You use it on your cellulite problem areas to minimize cellulite and firm the skin.  My eyes were also looking a little tired, so I used a pomegranate eye mask the day before I left to brighten up my under eyes and re-energize my skin.  I was super happy with all three products, so I wanted to share them with you guys!  Below are the links to where you can get them 🙂
